All proceeds will be donated to support the victims of this shooting, via the #TORONTOSTRONG Fund, which was initially set up by the City of Toronto and the Toronto Foundation for the victims of the April van attack that killed 10 and injured 16.

That fund has raised $3.5 million to date, according to the site, and will close Aug. 31 with final disbursements made by Sept. 30.  A second fund has been set up “to provide direct support to the victims of the Danforth shooting,” it reads. There are two donation tabs on the main site.
